Discover Naturopathic Care in the Cowichan Valley with Dr. Rikst Attema, ND
*** COVID-19 Update - We are open but please read my COVID-19 Response Page for more details****
Welcome! I am a passionate and caring Naturopathic Physician having practiced in the Cowichan Valley for over 10 years. I love serving this community and am blessed to practice and live here.
The beauty of Naturopathic Medicine is looking for the underlying cause of health problems and treating the individual, not the disease, with safe and effective natural approaches. There is a reason more and more individuals seek complementary health care practitioners ... to complement the health care you are already receiving and treat you as a whole person.
The first step in your healing journey is determining the root cause as well as the barriers to healing. Together we go through a detailed health history as well as detailing your day to day experiences and lifestyle. The body, mind and soul are interconnected and it is my job (with your help) to try and get to the root of your concerns. I believe that a combination of conventional and complementary medicine is the medicine of the future. I also believe that the patient plays the most vital role in this journey towards healing and health.
Please note that as of October 2021 I am no longer taking on new patients into my practice. I may revisit this in 2022 and will update this site as that changes. I apologize to those seeking Naturopathic care in the Valley. You may find other NDs at www.bcna.ca. Wishing you all the best in your health journey.
